Fat Black Pussycat Sign Gone

More from Jeremiah’s Vanishing NY about the historic Fat Black Pussycat sign on Minetta Street that was painted over on Wednesday…

“Says the tipster, “The faded remnants of The Fat Black Pussycat Theatre sign on Minetta St. was painted over on Wednesday by the owners of Panchito’s Restaurant. Tour groups would often stop to see the faded signage and the building where Dylan wrote ‘Blowin’ In The Wind.’ It’s stupefying… neighbors were yelling at the painters as they were quickly painting over the signage.”

The City’s Oldest Hardware Stores

Some of the oldest surviving businesses in the city are hardware stores. Ephemeral New York has more here, including photos…

“S. Wolf Paints and Wallpaper, on Ninth Avenue in the 50s, is the granddaddy of them all, opening in 1869—just a few years after the end of the Civil War!”
